Natural Beauty: Sun protection

Physical sunblocks are products containing ingredients such a titanium dioxide and zinc oxide which physically block ultraviolet radiation. Sometimes these can leave your skin with a whitish appearance, with I will review in the descriptions below.

Recently Badger came out with an Unscented SPF 30 Sunscreen. It's their popular SPF 30 sunscreen formula with out the essential oil fragrance! This will make you a wee bit pasty.

Vive Sana, which means live healthy in Italian, is a staff favorite and the brand that Tara uses for herself (SPF40 Ultra) and on her own little ones (Baby SPF 42) . These sunblocks will give you a moderate ghostly appearance. I love their motto "Solar to Polar" and it's made with 70% organic ingredients

Burn Out ocean tested physical sunscreen SPF 30 is very water resistant and is ocean safe and eco-sensitive. Burn Out was developed by Environmental Scientist / Surfer Kevin Dunn, who, after 14 years of surfing and countless tubes of sunscreen, found that truly functional sunscreens did not exist.

John Masters Organics SPF30 natural mineral sunscreen is another staff favorite. It's made with certified organic ingredients and goes on clear.

MyChelle Sun Shield SPF 28 is reef safe, unscented, full spectrum UVA/UVB sunblock that not only goes on clear, but leaves a nice matte finish.
